The Tsar's Last Armada: The Epic Voyage to the Battle of Tsushima
The Tsar's Last Armada: The Epic Voyage to the Battle of Tsushima
by Constantin Pleshakov, et al
It took the Russians nine months to sail their navy 18,000 miles from the Baltic Sea around the horn of Africa and to the Sea of Japan in 1905, where their Japanese enemies wiped them out in just a few hours at the Battle of Tsushima. The Japanese triumph and Russian disaster, "largely forgotten in the West," according to Constantine Pleshakov, marked a vital turning point in world history. Not only did it inaugurate a new era of naval technology, but it also announced Japan's ascent as a global force (which would culminate during the Second World War) and Russia's collapse into "the dark tsardom of Bolshevism." Pleshakov ranks the battle alongside other classic naval engagements, such as Lepanto, Trafalgar, Jutland, and Midway. Yet the bulk of The Tsar's Last Armada focuses on the Russians' long journey to doom, led by the "frightfully imposing" and "savage" admiral Zinovy Petrovich Rozhestvensky. Pleshakov has a good eye for little details. As the fleet approached the tropics, he reports, the humidity became so bad that the crew's "towels and underwear would not dry." The Battle of Tsushima receives full coverage at the end of the book, but Pleshakov's engaging account of what preceded it is what readers will find most memorable. --John Miller - Amazon.com

The White Peril in the Far East: An Interpretation of the Significance of the Russo-Japanese War
The White Peril in the Far East: An Interpretation of the Significance of the Russo-Japanese War
by Daniel A. Metraux
Book Description: Sidney Lewis Gulick's 1905 masterpiece, The White Peril in the Far East: An Interpretation of the Significance of the Russo-Japanese War is a fascinating contemporary study of the most significant war of the early modern era. Japan's stunning victory over Russia was the first time that an Asian country had defeated a white European nation. Japan's victory was a clear signal to other Asians that they too could roll back the tide of Western imperialism. The republication of Gulick's book is part of an ongoing effort by this scholar to introduce modern readers to now long-forgotten out-of-print works by pioneer Japanologists. The Editor (Daniel Metraux) provides an introduction that places Gulick's work in the context of modern Japanese history.

The Fleet That Had to Die
The Fleet That Had to Die
by Richard Hough
Book Description: On the outbreak of the Russo-Japanese War in 1904 Russia's Baltic Fleet was sent to the aid of embattled troops in Russia's Chinese enclaves. Most observers thought that the Russians would have little trouble defeating Japanese naval forces. The two fleets met at Tsushima on May 27, 1905. What followed was perhaps the greatest naval victory of all time. At a cost of three torpedo boats, the Japanese admiral Togo sank three Russian battleships and much of the rest of the fleet. 

A stunned Europe awoke to the presence of a new world power and shocked public reaction in Russia led directly to the fall of the Czar twelve years later. The acclaimed author of The Bounty has written another gripping tale of the sea.
